Discovery Zone

Two Wheel Fun for Everyone

A one of a kind area dedicated to kids from 3 to 80.  
The Discovery Zone is the only lift accessed area dedicated 100% to progression. Three beginner trails, an intermediate trail and an all new Skills Park combine with a designated lift to provide an introduction to the sport unavailable anywhere else in the country. Smooth trails, berms lined with cement pavers and gradual slopes are what to expect at this truly extraordinary area that is perfect for riders of all ages and abilities.
 


Trails


Pioneer Practice Loop – Learn the right way to ride with easy features, educational signage and video instruction accessed easily on your smartphone. Small berms, widely spaced rocks, a series of small rollers and a short bridge introduce new riders to some of the terrain they’ll encounter out in the park. Check out the video below for a sneak peak at the video series you'll find along the trail.

Discovery Trail – Discover how fun mountain biking can be on this easy beginner trail. Smooth trail surfaces and limited terrain features make this the ideal trail for the first timer to expand on the skills learned on the Pioneer Practice Loop.

Adventure Trail – More challenges and two-wheeled adventures unfold on the Adventure trail, where you’ll find dirt and paver berms, small rollers and an increase in pitch. This trail ends with a series of dirt berms that could be one of the most enjoyable experiences on two wheels.

Explorer Trail
– Step up your game a bit with small jumps, tighter paver berms and a steeper grade. This trail also accesses our new and improved Skills Park.

Skills Park – New and improved this year! This zone introduces bikers to small drops, bridges, rollers, berms and jumps. With multiple sized features the skills park is a fun and easy way to improve your bike handling and prepare for some of the larger manmade features out in the park.


*Discovery Chair (Ch 11) operates for uphill travel only and guests can hike or bike back to the Adventure Center from the top of the chairlift.
